Which Cars Have Self-Driving Features for 2019?

Want to buy a self-driving car? Bad news: Despite prototype test fleets in many cities and widespread reports of their imminence, driverless vessels that putter from home to destination while you sleep, read or tweet remain something you still can’t nab at the local auto mall. The closest production car to that reality was to be the new Audi A8, equipped with the new Traffic Jam Pilot feature capable of navigating highway gridlock while you watched the morning news on the dashboard touchscreen. But regulatory hurdles forced Audi to sideline the system for U.S. shoppers, at least for now.

That said, many cars still offer elements of self-driving, often called advanced driver assistance systems, on a limited basis. All current U.S. production cars still require drivers to pay attention and take over steering, braking and acceleration in a pinch. But even in these early stages, today’s ADAS technology can still ease the burden of a daily commute.

Many will take over acceleration and braking to maintain a consistent pace with the car ahead, even down to a full stop in traffic. Some will keep the car centered in its lane by reading lane markings, by the position of the car ahead or by some combination of the two. And a few will even let you take your hands off the wheel, provided a driver-facing camera intuits your attention. Of course, all of them require the right conditions — from sufficiently visible lane lines and speed thresholds to GPS-linked highways, depending on the system.

Which cars have these features? We reached out to automakers, combed through owner’s manuals and categorized major capabilities across more than 200 cars from 33 mainstream brands. For the 2019 model year, here’s the lay of the self-driving land.

  • 2019 BMW 3 Series
  • 2019 BMW 8 Series
  • 2019 BMW X5
  • 2019 BMW X7

What should I look for? BMW’s Adaptive cruise control that operates all the way to a stop goes by Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go. One step beyond that, Active Lane Keeping Assist with Side Collision Avoidance constitutes hands-on, lane-centering steering that can work down to a stop in certain traffic conditions. Finally, Extended Traffic Jam Assistant is a new feature available on the redesigned 3 Series and X5 plus the new 8 Series and X7. ETJA enables hands-free driving at low speeds on divided highways as long as you’re paying attention, something the car intuits with a driver-facing camera. It makes BMW one of two brands on the U.S. market (the other is Cadillac) to offer provisional hands-free driving.

What should I look for? Adaptive cruise control down to a stop comes in the form of Cadillac’s Adaptive Cruise Control Advanced. Hands-free lane-centering steering, which works from a stop all the way up to highway speeds on certain highways, comes via Cadillac’s Super Cruise system. Introduced a model year ago on the CT6, Super Cruise is no longer the only hands-free steering system in a U.S. production vehicle — BMW now offers the capability, too — but it remains the only one that can do it all the way up to highway speeds. Super Cruise doesn’t relieve you of the need to pay attention in order to take over if necessary, something the system intuits through a driver-facing camera.

Adaptive cruise control and lane-centering steering, both down to a stop:

  • 2019 Hyundai Nexo

What should I look for? Depending on the car, Smart Cruise Control with Stop/Start or Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go. The Nexo’s lane-centering steering comes in the form of Lane Following Assist, which works all the way down to a stop. By contrast, Lane Keep Assist (sometimes Lane Keeping Assist) is a separate feature widely available across affiliated brands Hyundai, Kia and Genesis. Hyundai officials won’t call it lane-centering, but in Cars.com’s experience with various LKA-equipped cars from the three brands, LKA does center the car in its lane above moderate speeds. Different cars may have different setups, however, so test drive them for yourself and see.

More About the Systems

Myriad differences exist in the systems listed above, and performance varies widely. In our evaluations, some systems maintain fastidious lane-centering and respond smoothly to changing traffic conditions. Others can allow significant wandering in your lane, react suddenly to changing traffic patterns, or both. Varying conditions, from weather to road markings, can affect whether — and how well — each system works. It’s a good idea to download the owner’s manual of your prospective car to learn how its self-driving systems work, and ask a dealer specialist for a tutorial when you buy the car. And, of course, pay attention to the road.

Want to know more? Read on.

  • Adaptive cruise control down to a stop: This feature builds on basic adaptive cruise control, a decades-old feature that maintains a selectable distance between you and the car ahead. Adaptive cruise that works at higher speeds is widely available, but systems that function down to a full standstill are an important next step to manage bumper-to-bumper traffic. Such systems can bring you to a full stop in traffic. Some require you to apply the brakes and reaccelerate afterward, while others can resume speed when the car ahead moves within a given timeframe.
  • Lane-centering steering: This goes beyond lane-departure steering assist, which intervenes only as you approach or cross the lane markings — and often pinballs you back toward the opposite markings — to actively center the vehicle in its lane by tracking lane markings, the vehicle ahead or some combination of the two. Such systems can often negotiate mild curves, as well, but nearly all of them require you to keep your hands on the wheel, issuing warnings and eventually deactivating if they sense a lack of steering force after a short time. Many lane-centering steering systems will also deactivate if lane markings disappear, which often occurs with construction zones, merging lanes or poorly marked roads. Some systems operate only above or below a certain speed threshold, but most modern systems now function from a stop all the way up to highway speeds.
  • Hands-free steering: This centers the car without your hands on the wheel. For 2019, only two systems — Cadillac’s Super Cruise and BMW’s Extended Traffic Jam Assistant — do this. Both require you to pay attention, intuited via driver-facing cameras.
